Reminiscing - Some of My First Scrapbook Layouts

I've been having a sort out of my albums lately and re-arranging them to have some kind of theme to each album and I came across these, some of the first LO's I did way back in 2006! Of course back then when I had finished them I put them away in albums as I was unaware of the online community I could share these with, so I thought I would take photo's of some of them (those that Im brave enough to share with you really!) and share them now.

This first one is my daughter Amy aged 13 months looking very angelic taking a nap in her pram. I remember cutting out all those flowers, it took me forever! I used a Dawn Bibby flower stamp to stamp onto pattern paper. Did you notice the mistake I made in the top right corner ? Initially there should have been 3 stamped butterflies but I messed up on the last one so I covered it with an apoxy sticker ;)

Another one of Amy, this time on the beach in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in April 2006. The papers and co-ordinating stickers came in a kit from QVC and the embossing around the edges was me playing with my new toy at the time, my Fiskars Embossing Board!

Another one from our trip to Florida in 2006. We took a day cruise over to the Bahamas and I did this LO of Amy getting her hair braided. The lady who did it for her kindly let me take her photo too.

I love this LO solely because of the photo of Tony aged 9 months. I cant take any credit for the LO itself as I copied it from the back of the K & Co paper stack - I think it was called Eddison (?)

This one is of my darling husband Eugene taken in 2007. 

All three of my babies taken in 1998. Poor Joe could hardly hold up his brother and sister long enough for the photographer to take the photo, hence both the twins look a bit lop-sided. 

This photo was taken 10 years ago can you believe it!!  We were lucky enough to spend christmas in Disneyworld and it was the best time ever. The papers came in a kit but I cant for the life of me remember where I got the mini t-shirt.

I quite enjoyed that trip down memory lane, maybe I'll be brave and 
share some of the other LO's later on.

Thanks for stopping by


  1. To be honest, you'd never think these were your "first attempt" if you like, they're all something I'd be more than happy to produce now ... wonderful layouts Dee, really they are.

  2. Great layouts Dee - I started out in 2004 doing it all the Creative Memories way - I wonder if I am brave enough to share some of them on my blog LOL!
